Asdrubal got the Indians started with a two-run homer in the first inning and Orlando finished off the show with a solo home run in the top of the 9th for the winning run.
The win left Cleveland a game behind the Tigers in the AL Central, while sending the Diamondbacks to their third straight loss, two games behind the Giants, who have won five straight, in the NL West.

Three different Dodgers - Tony Gwynn Jr., Matt Kemp and Trent Oeltjen - collected four hits apiece as the team attempted to retain some sense of dignity even though they are nine games behind the Giants in the NL West and eight game under .500, at 36-44.
Oeltjen, the rookie outfielder, had a pair of singles, a triple and a solo home run, drove in a pair of runs and scored three times.
Twelve hits by the Dodger outfield says more about the team than the financial fiasco of the ownership.
INTERLEAGUE TALLY: There were just six interleague games on Monday, and the National League won four of them, trimming the AL lead to just two games, at 88-86.
